It's the people that make Atlanta Pride so special. From the opening celebration to the closing party, tens of thousands of people celebrate at brunch, in Piedmont Park and along the parade route in Midtown.
They are smiling, showing off their best assets, clad in rainbow couture and showing off their Pride all weekend long. Just like they do every single year.
So we celebrate the people that make Pride with this album of photos shot in the park over the weekend, during the parade on Sunday and at the tasty 15th Annual HRC Atlanta Pride Brunch at Empire State South.
